Scarborough senior Matt Caron became the first player from the program to win the Travis Roy Award at the Class A Coaches’ Association All-State banquet in Lewiston. The award, given to the top senior Class A player in the state and named after the former Yarmouth High and North Yarmouth Academy standout who was paralysed during his first collegiate shift at Boston University, was given to Caron, who led the Red Storm to their first Class A championship as a junior, then had 19 goals and 23 assists as a senior, as Scarborough lost to Lewiston in the waning seconds of the state final.
“It’s really an honor to be named the Travis Roy (winner),” Caron said. “I’ve got to thank my coaches so much. My parents, they’ve really just guided me along the path to get here. It’s really incredible that I’m holding this trophy right now.”
“He comes and he brings everything and he puts everything on the line,” Scarborough coach Norm Gagne said.
